Transmission has commenced on a large gigabit Ethernet metropolitan area network (MAN) in Sydney's CBD.
Telco carrier Davnet has rolled out the network for use by corporate clients across Sydney and Melbourne. Davnet says, linked with its Melbourne MAN, completed about a month ago, the is the only IP-based gigabit network in the country.
"With Sydney up and running, we can now turn our attention to replicating the MANs in Brisbane and Perth as soon as practicable," said Stephen Molgnard, Davnet's CEO.
Moignard said the Sydney network could transmit more than seven million pages per second, an increase of 6-10 times of the original Ethernet network.
